Geochemical, oxygen isotopic, and mineral age data of eclogite facies metapelites from the Sesia Zone (Western Alps, NW Italy)
Bulk geochemical analyses (XRF + LOI) of metapelites from the central Sesia Zone (Western Alps, NW Italy). Samples show eclogite facies assemblages and experienced re-hydration during Alpine subduction after previous de-hydration to granulite facies. The dataset shows that Sesia samples are derived from rocks related to Ivrea Zone granulites.
